10Base-F

A 10 Mbps Ethernet standard that uses optical fibers to extend the distance up to 1.2 miles compared to the 100 meter limitation of 10Base-T copper wires. All stations are wired in a star configuration to a repeater or central concentrator using ST or SMA connectors. Older Ethernet computers with AUI connectors used a fiber-optic transceiver to connect to a 10Base-F network.

10Base-FL, 10Base-FP and 10Base-FB
10Base-FL defines the link between concentrator and station; 10Base-FP defines a star-coupled network; 10Base-FB defines a fiber backbone. See Ethernet and 10Base-T.

The 100BASE-SX Ethernet standard for fiber, ratified in 2001, using the same low cost 850 nm LEDs supports a low cost upgrade path from existing 10BASE-FL fiber installations to 100Mbps bandwidths.

The fiber optic interface includes an optical quantizer on the input and direct drive LED at the output to support small form factor (SFF), low cost, miniature components for 850nm 10BASE-FL and 100BASE-SX designs or 1300nm 100BASE-FX fiber implementations.
The JET Networks MC10/100 media converter automatically senses and configures as a 10BASE-T to 10BASE-FL media converter for 10 Mbps networks, or as a 100BASE-TX to 100BASE-SX media converter for 100 Mbps networks.
This is made possible because 100BASE-SX and 10BASE-FL both use the same optical wavelength of 820nm.
The other four slots are available for switching modules, which initially support 10BASE-T, 10BASE-FL and 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet.
The following Switch Node products are expected to be available for shipment in May; a five-slot chassis priced at $2,495; CPU module priced at $5,490, including 16 MB memory; 16-port 10BASE-T switching module priced at $7,495; eight-port 10BASE-FL switching module priced at $7,495; two-port 1OOBASE-TX switching module priced at $6,495.
The new 100BASE-SX technology uses the same short wavelength as the existing 10BASE-FL.
Pricing for the chassis is $2,995, with module pricing as follows: the 8-port 10BASE-T is $2,495; the 4-port 10BASE-FL is $2,995; the 2-port 100BASE-TX is $1,995 and the 2-port 100BASE-FX is $2,750.
April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Allied Telesyn International today announced the introduction of the AT-4016F, a 10BASE-FL ATM/Ethernet access switch.
